Thanks to Ponta da Piedade’s stunning rock formations, pristine beaches like Praia do Camilo and the vibrant nightlife found in beachside bars, restaurants and hotels, Lagos is one of the Algarve’s most popular tourist towns.
Lagos, in Portugal’s popular Algarve region, isn’t left wanting when it comes to tourist-friendly attractions. Within 16th-century walls, the old town is made up of cobbled streets, seafood restaurants and Baroque churches, while some of the coastline’s best beaches, kayaking spots and surf schools are a short drive or walk away.
Call in for a local craft beer or cocktail at this bohemian, verdant courtyard, in the centre of the old town. Packed with foliage, sofas and shade-giving trees and roamed by friendly resident cats, the Garden is also sought out for its barbecued meats (order the ribs) and fish, all of which are served with summer salads, coleslaw and boiled new potatoes. If beer’s not your thing, there’s always sangria, another of the speciality house tipples. Book in advance to secure a drinking spot.
